A plea has been issued for talks to bring T in the Park back after it was confirmed there will be no return in 2019.
Perth SNP MP Pete Wishart has called on Perth and Kinross Council to do more to bring back the music extravaganza after DF Concerts supremo Geoff Ellis said there are no plans to stage another camping festival.
DF Concerts has been concentrating on its TRNSMT festival, which will be staged for the second year on Glasgow Green and expand to a six-day event.
T in the Park had to move from its long-term location in Balado, Kinross-shire, in 2015 after safety concerns about an oil pipeline under the site.
Concert organisers held it twice in the grounds of Strathallan Castle, near Auchterarder, but problems with traffic congestion, weather and unruly behaviour led DF Concerts to say it would be taking a break from hosting it.
Mr Ellis has confirmed there are “no plans” to stage another camping festival such as T in the Park in the next few years.
“I’m never going to say we’re never going to do one again but we have nothing to say about another camping event just now,” he said.
“We had to pause T in the Park because of the huge costs of operating on that site (Strathallan) and we also had dreadful weather. Nobody saw the site in all its beauty.”
He added: “Camping festivals are great. We just don’t have any plans for one. But that has nothing to do with TRNSMT expanding to six days.”
Mr Wishart said he will ask the DF Concerts chief executive if he will consider bringing T in the Park to the grounds of Scone Palace, after the success of the Biggest Weekend and recent Rewind festivals.
